Re: Senor [official releases and lyrics]
Hello monkey99: there are at least two performances on "official" releases that are worthwhile, especially since the other material on the CD's is great as well. [Note: both performances are with the "Jerry Garcia Band." Also, both releases are double-CD's.]
1993 on the CD, "Jerry Garcia Plays Dylan:"http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Garcia_Plays_Dylan.htm
[Note: 2 CD release of covers of Dylan songs by Garcia/Saunders, Legion of Mary, Jerry Garcia Band and the Grateful Dead. All recordings are from live performances and date from 1973 to 1995.]
1990/1991 from the CD, "Jerry Garcia Band:"http://www.deaddisc.com/disc/Jerry_Garcia_Band.htm
[Note: A live double CD of the Jerry Garcia Band at the Warfield Theater recorded either in the Spring of 1990 or in August 1990.]
Here are the lyrics and some miscellaneous notes:
Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power)
Lyrics: Bob Dylan
[This was rehearsed by Bob Dylan with the Grateful Dead in 1987 but never played live then. Jerry Garcia played it regularly with the JGB in the 1990s, and Dylan played it with The Dead in 2003.]
Senor, senor, do you know where we're heading?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon?
Seems like I been down this way before
Is there any truth in that, senor?
Senor, senor, do you know where she is hiding?
How long are we gonna be riding?
How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door?
Will there be any comfort there, senor?
There's a wicked wind still blowin' on that upper deck
There's an iron cross still hanging down from around her neck
There's a marching band still playing in that vacant lot
Where she held me in her arms one time and said, "Forget me not"
Senor, senor, I can see that painted wagon,
I can smell the tail of the dragon
Can't stand the suspense anymore
Can you tell me who to contact here, senor?
Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeled
Was that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field
A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ring
Said, "Son, this ain't a dream no more, it's the real thing"
Senor, senor, you know their hearts is as hard as leather
Well, give me a minute, let me get it together
I just gotta pick myself up off the floor
I'm ready when you are, senor
Senor, senor, let's disconnect these cables
Overturn these tables
This place don't make sense to me no more
Can you tell me what we're waiting for, senor?
Peace be with you, monkey99 ----
"...There are many here among us, who feel that life is but a joke /
But you and I, we've been through that, and it is not our fate /
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late..."
